Forward

As a first-time soldier
thrusting his face forward
took flight the new pilot
into a valley of unknown 
unaware of all the volleys
the number of pelting shots
unabashedly facing the void
with nothing to lose, all to gain
unseeing unknown forces at work
missing every torrential outburst
shot forward, heeding his captain 
right into the waiting arms of fate
went bravely
through pouring rains
